I’ve got a short and sweet episode for you today! We are talking about how and why you shouldn’t create a business that is the “right fit” for everyone — the art of attracting some and repelling others.

I run a pretty lean business — meaning lower expenses, higher profit margins! I’m proud of that. That’s a PRO of online business, we can be lean!

Site traffic is super important, but what’s equally important (or arguably even more important) is how long people stay on your website.
